You may want to check your /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/hosts.
AFAIK the osf1 libs are more sensible about propper syntax.

Continuing on my little setiathome thread, I'm running it from cron thus:

[root@erwin]/root: crontab -l
# Run setiathome, and check it every hour
0 * * * * cd /usr/local/bin/seti-tru; ./setiathome > /dev/null 2> /dev/null

This is as suggested on the seti website. the issue with this is that the lockfile (lock.sah) is not being respected by the client, and cron ends up starting the setiathome process every hour.

Is there a way to test whether the client is running, and not start a new process of it if there is one?


We should build an Intel processor out of penguins.
